Pagdayao Festival is celebrated August 1st to 5th every year in Dumarao, Capiz. 

Being held every year mirrors the spirit of unity and cooperation of its people. One of the few is the street dancing and pista ng bayan. These are the concrete example of group effort. From one fermented idea of planners, action men and executions, they have translated their ideas and concepts into mass action of well rehearsed and well executed play, dancers and graceful rendition of songs and dances. A delight to the eyes of the heart.
